Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours
115 South Water Street, Lewiston, NY 14092 • 1-888-438-4444
Why Jet Boats? Our fleet of custom-built boats use a triple turbo diesel water jet system for propulsion and steering, creating incredible reliability and safety in the turbulent whitewater rapids of the Niagara River. “The genesis of Whirlpool Jet Boats traces back to the summer of 1981 when I first witnessed the spectacle of the Niagara River gorge as part of a kayaking expedition. I recall standing beside the towering waves in astonishment, wondering if I would ever experience firsthand the rapids commonly referred to as the “Mount Everest” of whitewater rapids. Now you can too!,” John Kinney, Owner.
